    Great as always Ira….come on man…. give us some good stories about you, Cummings, Mizell, and Shelton…the heavy hitters. You must have some great ones in the back of your mind, man.

    Tampa area treasure Ira K. continues to “bring it”. Great point regarding Beckles…thinks he was John Hannah but is more cartoonish like Hannah Barbera. Ira may have done such a great job getting Sapp in 1st ballot that the bar is set unreasonably high as the Custodian of Canton. LOL at Koetter giving Steve the proverbial “Pillsbury belly poke”! 🙂

    I have no problem w/ Lynch getting in, but I agree w/ Rhealist.

    Ronde has GOT to be in!

    Career longevity, ridiculous stats, game-changer at the position, total class act, won a superbowl on the most dominant defense… Must I go on? Get Ronde in!

    Soooooo JOES….. Now that Coach K has said the line was overwhelmed at the point of attack, would you concede that the line wasn’t good enough in the run game last year?
    (And to clarify, I’m not saying they were 100% at fault for the run game woes, just trying to put equal blame where it belongs)
    Joe was waiting for that question. Look, Koetter’s comments don’t mean the Bucs’ line imploded consistently. It’s just not the case. But Hawley was the weak link, which we all knew, and the run stuffs numbers on the Bucs in the A-gap led the NFL. However, none of that changes the fact that Martin was hot garbage and other running backs had much better numbers and film. And Joe’s talking about Martin’s film, as well, not just the stats. To your question, “good enough” is a very vague question. Did the O-line cost the Bucs a trip to the playoffs? Center is where the upgrade was most needed and the Bucs addressed it.–Joe
